On August 8th, Clash Magazine returns to the scintillatingly soft and pulsating underbelly of East London for a night of live music from three of the biggest new acts around. Bipolar Sunshine, Benin City and Tuesday Born will all grace the stage for full live performances, with all dots joined together by the voracious micro-DJ sets of disgraced Glasgow selector Mr Mafro (formerly of chaotic African clubnight; Kinky Afro).

Bipolar Sunshine occupies headline slot. The Manchester lad hasn’t put a foot wrong since going solo, constantly churning out an impressive slew of Afrobeat electro and sunny guitar lines. And his recent A$AP Rocky tribute revealed a delicate set of pipes that nobody quite expected… Supporting, are two acts from forward-thinking indie label Audio Doughnuts. The first, Tuesday Born, is a 21 year old jazz based pianist and producer with a bubbling penchant for soulful r&b. He draws his musical inspiration from two long spells in Columbia and Ghana, and both cultures manifest subtly on recent track ‘Wake’. The most arresting performance of the night will undoubtedly come from main support Benin City. Led by Joshua Idehen, a bastion of London’s spoken word scene, the group are a frenetic mesh of drums, sax, beats and rhymes. Their album drops on July 1st.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
